Re: D90 to D7000 or 18-105mm to 16-85mm

Just to add my 2 cents-

I recently migrated from the D200 with a 18-200 to a D90 with 16-85 and now - at last - D7000 with the 16-85. I mostly should at the wide end so I don't miss the 18-200. The 16-85 definitely has better IQ and handle better (lighter, smaller, sharper). The D7000 has dual SDHC card slots so I can shoot one for my iPad and WEB and the other in NEF (RAW) for prints. The improvement in resolution is noticeable and I appreciate the availability of video. I am very sensitive about using what I need rather than what I want (don't ask) and this kit fits the bill. I also use a Sigma 10-20 and a Nikon 70-300 when I am day hiking - if I am not using the my lighter rig with a Panasonic G3
